Core proteins exert control over DNA functionCore proteins exert control over DNA function
Rice University-based models simulate how nucleosomes facilitate gene exposure
The protein complex that holds strands of DNA in compact spools partially disassembles itself to help genes reveal themselves to specialized proteins and enzymes for activation, according to Rice University researchers and their colleagues. (June 21, 2016)

Thailanstatin A disrupts disease by inhibiting DNA-editing machinery
Rice University scientists have synthesized a novel anti-cancer agent, Thailanstatin A, which was originally isolated from a bacterial species collected in Thailand.  (June 20, 2016)


DNA in ‘unbiased’ model curls both waysDNA in ‘unbiased’ model curls both ways
Rice University calculations show chromosomes’ ‘superhelix’ can twist left or right
In 1988, scientists in Switzerland looked through a microscope and saw something they didn’t expect: two sections of an X-shaped chromosome spiraling in opposite directions. Now scientists at Rice University have confirmed that such anomalies are indeed possible.  (June 14, 2016)

Rice University’s single-molecule submersibles gain better fluorescent properties for tracking
The next generation of nanosubmarines being developed at Rice University has been upgraded with tags that fluoresce longer, which enables the submersibles to be tracked for greater periods while being driven through a solution. (June 13, 2016)


‘Missing tooth’ hydrogels handle hard-to-deliver drugs‘Missing tooth’ hydrogels handle hard-to-deliver drugs
Rice University’s custom hydrogel traps water-avoiding molecules for slow delivery
A gap-toothed peptide created by bioengineers at Rice University may be an efficient way to deliver insoluble drugs to precise locations in the body. (June 7, 2016)


Nanocars taken for a rough rideNanocars taken for a rough ride
Rice, NC State researchers test single-molecule cars in open air
Rice University and North Carolina State University researchers found in recent tests that driving their vehicles in ambient conditions – exposed to open air, rather than a vacuum – got dicey after a time because the hydrophobic single-molecule cars stuck to the “road” and created what amounted to large speed bumps.  (June 1, 2016)


New cancer fighters emerge from labNew cancer fighters emerge from lab
Rice University lab simplifies total synthesis of anti-cancer agent
The lab of Rice University synthetic organic chemist K.C. Nicolaou has reported the streamlined total synthesis of delta12-prostaglandin J3, a molecule previously claimed to kill leukemic cancer cells.  (May 23, 2016)
